Three and 1/2 Year Checkup
I went to my oncologist for my 3 1/2 year check-up which came at a good time as I mysteriously had a period after 3 years of not having any. This alarmed my oncologist as the cancer fighting drug I am now taking is only effective if one is in menopause. He wants me either to go back to using Tamoxifen or he wants me to take shots once a month to make sure I am in menopause. He also wants me to get checked out by my gynecologist to make sure the bleeding doesn't indicate something serious.
